Purchased from a fellow Agoner last year. Beautiful rosewood finish. Excellent condition. Exterior in very good shape.
I have loved this integrated so much I'm moving up to the Grand Integrated. There are many reviews of this amp but this just came out:
In The Absolute Sounds' 2012 High-End Audio Buyers Guide, they said:
"Peachtree Audio's versatile Nova is a multi-purpose component that offers a surprisingly high level of performance at a sensible price. Specifically, the Nova combines the functions of a 24/96khz upsampling DAC with USB, S/PDIF, and TOSLINK inputs, a hybrid tube/solid state 80Wpc integrated amplifier with digital and analog inputs, and a class A tube powered headphone amp(you can also use the Nova as a hybrid DAC/preamp). The core sound of the Nova is focused and revealing, with taut, but perhaps lightly weighted bass. Overall we preferred the sound of the Nova with its 6922-based tube circuit engaged, which helps give the unit welcome touches of warmth and harmonic richness. Predictably, the Nova makes a great amp/DAC on which to base starter high-end audio systems."
I tried the Nova in every iteration as described above and it was excellent in every case. Relative to "lightly weighted bass", I didn't share that feeling, I thought the bass was excellent. My feeling is that this amp can also be the end of searching for the "right" component. I got rid of expensive tube amps and pre-amp and didn't miss them.
The amp comes with a ElectroHarmmonix 6922 which sounds excellent but I had read that the so called russian NOS "super tube", as it's been called, 6H23 was magical, so that is what's in the amp now. I will include both of those tubes, both have very low hours, with an addtional 6H23 tube that is brand new.
